Why Gary Vee is So Your New BFF
So, you want to rule the world. Or maybe you just want to rule your own destiny, take charge of your life by making the most of your time and talents. Either way, you are going to want to get to know Gary Vaynerchuk, aka “Gary Vee”. Get to know him well. And a lot.
More than perhaps anyone else, Gary Vaynerchuk is the author and social media pundit who can help you unlock the secrets to success. Actually, there’s no real secret. It’s a lot of hard work and time and smart strategies. But here’s the thing: Gary super gets it. He knows just what you need to do, should do, and how to do it, and he lets you know and understand what needs to be done, and why, without the usual P.C. platitudes and banal B.S. He tells it to you straight, and he tells it to you with power and clarity.
He’s the author of several books, all of which are like holy bibles to us here at Like a Boss Girls. We’re constantly sharing Gary’s Gary-osity here on our site and across our social media pkatforms because learning from Mr. Vee is a surefire way to speed up your path to not just being “Like a Boss Girl” but becomng your own boss, girl!
Right now – yes, right now – go to Amazon.com and get Crush It!: Why NOW Is the Time to Cash in on Your Passion. Entrepreneurs: already working on your own biz or brand? Get yourself Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook: How to Tell Your Story in a Noisy Social World. Trust me, you’ll thank me later. (Flowers are always nice, or a cute JUARA gift basket would be fine, too.)
See, Gary’s not just super helpful, he’s super human. And by that I don’t mean he can leap tall buildings (although I wouldn’t put it past him), but that he really understands what it is to be human – and how that impacts brands and business. He gets how you feel, he gets how your customers feel. Gary gets how people work, so he gets how businesses work. He has a keen understanding that business IS people, and that means he is a genius at knowing and conveying what you need to do to build and communicate your brand. And he does it all without smoke and mirrors and a lot of business school bull. That’s why his books are best-sellers and his videos get millions of views and shares.
He’s not smart ass-y but he is smart. His emotional intelligence helped him understand things a lot of MBAs’ BS never will, and as a young college grad had him take his family’s little wine business to 60 million dollars in just five years! Now Gary runs VaynerMedia, one of the world’s hottest digital agencies. He is also a prolific angel investor, venture capitalist and a fantastic public speaker. (I went to see him speak in NYC a few months ago. He was so entertaining I almost forgot I was hearing some life-altering insights!)
But what makes him our hero – and what you should care about — is how accessible he is. Gary hosts the #AskGaryVee Show, taking questions from his ever-growing audience. In this way, he gives mere mortals like you and me free yet priceless information and inspiration regarding social media, entrepreneurship, startups, and more. In fact, to make it crazy-easy to get Gary-tastic advice on the topic you want, they have a new search engine that allows you to find the answers to YOUR specific questions. It’s like having your own personal GaryVee 24/7.
What’s more, his latest book, #AskGaryVee: One Entrepreneur’s Take on Leadership, Social Media, and Self-Awareness, is chock-full of the honest, helpful and often surprising answers to the thousands of questions he receives from people just like you. Sometimes his answers are outrageous or brutal, and that’s why we love him. Gary doesn’t pull any punches in getting you on the right path to being a knock-out success.
Don’t believe me? Well, here’s what the Huffington Post had to say:
Gary Vaynerchuk’s new book kicks ass like Muhammad Ali…Gary delivers. When you reach the end you feel your mind has expanded with a wealth of information and some new curiosities. You can and should go buy a copy right now (are book reviewers supposed to say that?)
See, if you want to know (and you do NEED to know) how to promote your brand and build your business using social media, you really gotta read #AskGaryVee. As Forbes.com said, it “will make you uncomfortable and get you excited about your discomfort.”
And see, that’s just it. Gary Vaynerchuk dispenses with the PC BS, instead dispensing advice and real-world wisdom. He gets you to stop dreaming and start doing, and if he has to kick your butt to get you off that same butt, well, you’ll thank him later.
Again, some sort of gift basket is always nice.
